Dalbello ill moro
i bought some 26.5 ill moros the other day for a real good price but im not sure if there too tight. i wore before these a dalbello krpton 27.5 and i just swam in them. and now after trying them on and walking and thinking the ill moros are pretty darn tight. how much will they pack out and will heating make them less tight?
i would suggest going to your local bootfitter and having them blow out the liner where your pressure points are and where you really feel it is too tight. I have the rampages and at first i thought they were a little tight also but they packed out nicely. and remember by walking around in your ski boots you cant judge the fit of the boot. When i fit people for boots i have them kick there heel back in the boot then stand up and drive there knee forward and then judge the fit of the boot. hope this helps.
il moros fit like shit before heating man. i was really unimpressed out of the box too, cause they are designed to be heat molded. while most boots dont NEED to be, these really do. as long as your toes arnt crushed, they are good. you MIGHT have a couple areas that need stretched/moved, but that liner should make a huge difference.

yeah i was thinking heating would do some good. my bootfitter guy said i shuold ski in them a few days before i heat them. is he right?
Intuition liners are a CUSTOM liner, meaning that they are meant to be molded. They are a blank slate out of the box, until you heat mold em, go back to your shop!
yeah thats what i thought. but the guy i bought them from at the shop said i should ski them a few days before i mold them... im pretty sure he knows his stuff but i really dont know on this one... is it possible to mold with a hairdryer?
well according to dalbello the id's have a pre-formed shape to fit right out of the box and don't nessaccarily need molding probly what hes going on, but they really do need to be heat molded and by someone that knows what they are doing you only really get 2 chances at a mold before the liner really begins to shrink. and no you can't use a hairdryer you really need the intuition heater which they might nave it was free if they ordered 15 pairs of intuition boots. you can mold on a normal heat stack but need to cook them for 15 mins. now just make sure he uses toe caps and pad any boney protrusions.
